Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

Quotations for Inspiration

     Hi Everyone - Sorry for the lack of much posting last week, I had a crazy week!  Hopefully, things are settling down.  Here it is Monday, ALREADY!  It is time for some Quotations.  I'd like to share some with you from some other bloggers:

From Abby Fowers:

"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." - Walt Disney

From Lynda R. Young:

"Be open, curious, present, and engaged.” – Author Unknown

From Stacy S. Jensen:

"The author should die once he has finished writing. So as not to trouble the path of the text." - Umberto Eco

     When you have a chance please stop by their blogs and say hello.

     Here is a poem I found that I will share with you.  Unfortunately, it is listed as Author Unknown.  I hope you find some inspiration in it to start your week.

Treasures In Life

There are treasures in life,
but owners are few
Of money and power to buy things
brand new.

Yet you can be wealthy and
feel regal too,
If you will just look for the
treasures in you.

These treasures in life are not
hard to find
When you look in your heart,
your soul, and your mind.

For when you are willing to
share what's within,
Your fervent search for riches
will end.

The joy and the laughter, the
smile that you bring;
The heart unafraid to love
and to sing;

The hand always willing
to help those in need;
Ones quick to reach out, to
labor and feed.

So thank you for sharing
these great gifts inside;
The caring, the cheering,
the hug when one cried.

Thanks for the energy,
encouragement too,
And thank you for sharing
the treasures in you.
- Author Unknown

     Have a wonderful start to your week!
